Simple gammon and leek pie
It’s that time of year again where we all start ditching the salads and tucking into homely comfort food. I’m a big fan of simple but tasty dishes and this is one of our favourites. Gammon and leek pie is great. It’s tasty, easy to make and pretty cheap too. It’s a dish that sums up what we love as a family and in these cold winter months it definitely warms you up from the inside out.
Cooking time – 35-40 minutes including prep. | Serves 3-4 people
5-6 large potatoes
525g Carnation cooking creme
Dash of milk for mashing potatoes
Cheddar cheese for grating on top
6. Once that’s cooked, transfer into the casserole dish that you placed the gammon in and give it a good mix.
7. The potatoes should now be cooked. Strain off the remaining water and they are ready for mashing. I like to put both butter and a little dash of milk into mine when mashing. I find it helps them stick together better.
The picture above doesn’t do it justice. It’s much tastier than it looks. I cheated a little with the carnation creme but you can make your own white sauce. The carnation creme came in the recent Deugstabox I received and thought this was a good recipe to try it in.
